I have included the code I have and the format snapshot I would like to have. I am using TexStudio and am new to LaTeX. Please help me and tell me the correct use of \author for this.

I suggest you use the "long form" suggestion in the documentation, combing this with \IEEEauthorrefmark to attach footnote symbols to tie the pieces of information together:

Sample output


\title{An Important Conference Contribution}

\author{\IEEEauthorblockN{Author One\IEEEauthorrefmark{1},
Author Two\IEEEauthorrefmark{2}, Author Three\IEEEauthorrefmark{3} and
Author Four\IEEEauthorrefmark{4}}
\IEEEauthorblockA{Department of Whatever,
Whichever University\\

If you have multiple authors with one or more people having multiple affiliations:

Use package


Then, at the place of authors:

\author[1]{FN1 LN1}
\author[1,2]{FN2 LN2}
\affil[1]{University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA \authorcr Email: {\tt \{uid1, uid2\}@usc.edu}\vspace{1.5ex}}
\affil[2]{NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA \authorcr Email: {\tt uid3@jpl.nasa.gov} \vspace{-2ex}} 

Note that \vspace{1.5ex} and \vspace{-2ex} to adjust vertical space padding.
